Illegal marijuana goes into legal trade

Illegal marijuana goes into legal trade

During this week Manitoba regulators confiscated all cannabis products provided by the company from Winnipeg, which was sent to licensed retail stores.

The management of Liquor, the Gaming, and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba and the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation state that the sale of all cannabis products produced by Bonify has been suspended due to quality control problems.

Prime Minister Brian Pallister says that he believes illegal cannabis has entered the legal distribution system. He says that the Canadian Ministry of Health was notified more than a week ago, but the provinces were only informed about this on Tuesday, December 18th, and the message came from the company, not from the federal government.

It is really big deal, the authorities are looking into the company business and how it had obtained the right to sell their product, the main concern is that customers should know that what they are buying is approved and licensed.

Last week Health Canada published a review of two varieties of Bonify cannabis products, which were sold in three Saskatchewan stores.

Health Canada stated that the products may not meet certain restrictions on microbial and chemical pollutants established by federal cannabis use regulations. Consumers are invited to return Bonify products in their original packaging to the store where they were purchased.

“The Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba and Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation management have been informed that the Canadian Health Department is investigating Bonify activities,” the organization said in a press release on Thursday.

Starting October 17th marijuana is legal to grow, sell and to buy throughout Canada. It doesn’t matter if you are using it or not, cannabis is coming, it is already here and as of today, it is sold in your local stores and online.
